LARRY KUZNETZ It is with great sadness that we unexpectedly lost our cherished and greatly loved husband, father and grandfather, Larry Kuznetz. He was passionate about fishing and golfing but he was mostly the proudest and the most dedicated husband, father and grandfather. He is survived by his wife, daughters, sons-in-law, four grandchildren, parents and sister. Larry practiced law for over 43 years, practicing in both Washington and Idaho. He was a member of the Spokane County and Washington state Bar Associations, Washington Association for Justice and Washington Employment Lawyers Association. He attended Fairhaven / Western Washington University receiving his BA degree in Psychology, cum laude. He then attended Hofstra University School of Law receiving his Juris Doctor Degree. He was an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Washington for four years. He was a partner in his law firm Powell, Kuznetz and Parker. He was a frequent speaker on issues related to discrimination, harassment and workers compensation. He was a past chair and member of the Washington State Bar Association Hearing Officer Selection Panel and was past chair of the Washington State Bar Association Disciplinary Board. He had been a past president and board member of Artisans as well as the Spokane AIDS Network. He was a member of the Inland Northwest Business Alliance. Larry was a dedicated past president and board member of Temple Beth Shalom. Larry had a true passion for helping others and his community. He is and will be greatly missed.

This morning, I went into shock when, in looking to find Larry's contact information, I saw his obituary notice instead. I cannot get my head around the fact that this wonderful lawyer and amazing human being, a friend of mine, is now gone. His passing has left a void for many of us. I had not been in touch with him during COVID-19, but if I ever needed anything "east of the mountains", he was a "go-to person" for me. Larry was an immensely giving person and was always there for me. Whether I had a big question or a little question, his door was always open. I consider Larry to be one of the good guys, one of the good people in this world. It was easy to see and recognize Larry was a special human being. My heartfelt condolences to Larry's family and close friends.

With kindest thoughts and best wishes,

We worked together at the Attorney General's office for a short time. Later we had a few cases against each other. He was always a gentleman, kind and considerate and he was a pleasure to work with. He made the practice of law fun and pleasurable even when we disagreed. I always considered him a friend and a true professional. Best wishes to Larry's family and friends.

I met Larry through the practice of law. He was typically an adversary in employment cases--he representing the employee and I representing the company or management. He was a consummate professional and gentleman. We often spent time discussing issues (family, vacations, holidays, etc.) unrelated to our cases. Through this, we became friends. I will miss him. He was a good guy. RIP, friend.
